Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain...Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; they will not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate.

13 weeks

It's been fun to follow along with other gals as they keep track of their progress with this survey.  I thought I would join in on the fun.  I was 13 weeks last Wednesday.

How far along? 13wks
Total weight gain/loss: I've lost about 6 pounds. 
Maternity clothes? The ol' rubber band through the button hole trick for now.
Stretch marks? None...yet.
Sleep: I'm up many times a night. I think the Lord is just preparing me for what's to come.
Best moment this week:  An "extra" ultrasound.  It was the first time we had seen arms/legs/fingers/toes.  Also Baby Boyce had the hiccups. Taking after his/her Momma already.  I get them at least once a month.
Movement: none felt yet, only seen.
Cravings: Anything acidic!  I could eat 8 grapefruits with each meal.  Pickles, pickled okra, dill pickle flavored chips.  The list goes on.  Also any fresh/raw produce.
Gender:  Too early to tell.
Labor Signs:  None.
Belly Button in or out?  In.
What I miss: Sushi. Although Kyle ended up with food poisoning last week from some bad sushi.  I think I can wait another 27 weeks.
What I am looking forward to:  16 week appointment. Such a joy to hear the heartbeat!
Weekly Wisdom:  Love the Lord, your spouse, and your children.  In that order.  I'm already realizing how caught up I could become in all things baby. 
Milestones:  The first trimester has come to a close.  It flew by!
